At Safeway, where he worked, employees have had to deal with three years with no rais- es and counting every paper clip, McKee said. "We are suffering, and we're really having a hard time fight now," McKee said. With all of the cuts, including no savings into the Building Reserve Fund, the city should freeze all of the pay that it can right now. Budget Committee member Dave Trask said it is difficult to tell the people of Sweet Home that the city is concerned about funding and theft grant raises. Employees with Weyerhaeuser or Les Schwab may not get raises this year. Trask said his last raise before retiring from CenturyLink was 1 percent. "It would set a good prece- dent," Trask said of freezing wag- es. "Do they deserve a raise? I don't know. Probably do, I guess. The bottom line is, as a Budget Committee, I think it would be ir- responsible not to bring this to the attention of the City Council." For/ner Budget Committee member and Mayor Dave Halley agreed: "What I think I see is that the councilors think they have an obligation to hold the line where they can hold the line." Council- ors brought the issue to the Bud- get Committee's attention, look- ing for a consensus to take to the council, rather than the council simply adopting a budget with a freeze with no discussion from the Budget Committee. All salaries are indexed to maintain a differential between supervisors and the employees they supervise, said City Manag- er Craig Martin. Freezing salaries would change that differential, which was set by council policy in the late 1990s.

That policy can be changed by the council. Budget Committee member Gerrit Schaffer said the raises for non-represented employees amounts to about $26,000. in con- text of the $22 million budget it's not a large amount of money. He said he is in the middle on wheth- er the wages should be frozen. Committee member Bruce Hobbs said it might make sense to use that money to restore a position, like the half-time posi- tion at the library; but he is kind of on the fence regarding a wage freeze. Police Chief Bob Burford, whose department has faced in- creasing revenue shortfalls due to compression in the last year, said he is open to a freeze on his sal- ary, but not for his department's supervisors. "If the council asked me or my boss (Martin), I don't have a problem with that," he Said. The Police Department's two sergeants and communications supervisors are holding the de- partment .together, working their shifts and then staying on call constantly while off-duty to help deal with the department's staff- ing shortage, he said. Burford asked that the com- mittee and council grant wage in- creases for his department, espe- cially since patrol officers in some other cities actually make more than Sweet Home's sergeants. Mayor Craig Fentiman asked the Budget Committee to leave the funding for the positions alone so that the council will have the option to decide whether to grant the raises or freeze wages. Present during the discussion were councilors Fentiman, Mary- beth Angulo, Jim Gourley, Mike Hall, McKee and Mahler and committee members .Andrew Al- len, Chuck Begley, Hobbs, Greg Korn, Schaffer and Trask.
